What is gum recession?

Simply put, gum recession is a phenomenon in which the gums shrink and expose the tooth roots. This phenomenon can occur on one tooth, many teeth or the entire jaw, seriously affecting aesthetics and causing many other complications.

Causes of exposed gums

One of the causes of exposed gums is improper oral care. Above all, brushing too hard or brushing incorrectly over time will lead to gum recession.

Oral diseases such as periodontitis, gingivitis, etc., if not treated promptly, will lead to swollen gums, infection, bleeding gums, gradual receding gums and even tooth loss.

Gum recession can also occur when patients lose teeth and are restored with porcelain bridges or removable dentures. Neither of these two methods can prevent jaw bone loss, so over time the gums will recede, causing the jaw to shrink and the face to age quickly.

Gum recession can also be caused by congenitally thin alveolar bone that cannot withstand strong impacts. It causes the gums to recede and the tooth roots to be exposed.
